Tiger Claw Radio #207 - Maximum Bits


  1. Been playing Settlers 2 Gold while listening to this. Its a nice chillout game (I know I said that before). I meant to say, that the Master System (MS) feels like it has more colors then the NES, but I might be wrong. Altered Beast was definetly a Demo game, as it showed that the Mega Drive could do near perfect Arcade ports. The other ports of the game are pretty bad, and weirdly altough the Arcade port is better then the Genesis port, I prefer the Genesis one. It was a good pack in game (before Sonic became it) as it showed, what the system was capable of, and it had no trouble doing gorier games then the NES. I have been lucky and got a boxed copy for 5 bucks, if it is anymore then that, that would be robbery, as it should be common, as it was the pack in game. I hate how sharks and the retro collecting craze have jacked up the prices, as there are still quite a few games I would love to own again, or own for the first time. Still I think the bubble will eventually burst, and hopefully the prices will go down. With MS I meant (Master System) and, I just always felt that the Master System could do more colors then the NES, but I may be wrong. Im happy you are still getting some neat games, and enjoy playing them. Yeah 45 minutes are not much in Phantasy Star, and you will find the first person dungeons soon. I would recommend to playing it with a guide, I think you will enjoy the game more then. I have enjoyed it alot myself. I have played ome Turbo Grapix roms, and there are some sweet games out there. It is right now too pricey for me to buy physical copies at the moment. I gotta watch more Shmuptober, Ill do that after I finish writing this.

    Question of the Beast:
    Since some of the bigger Youtube Gaming channels have games based on them, how would the Tiger Claw game be like? Like Genre, setting, system etc.

  2. TCR 207

    1. @Minute 76 (Talking about EverDrives just being ROM carts): I tried
    to bite my tongue the first time you said something as special as an
    EverDrive being an expensive way to play the games on an original
    machine versus using a RaspBerry Pi. With the Pi, you get all the
    emulation errors due to the Pi not being able to properly emulate the
    system. An EverDrive gives perfect emulation because there is no
    emulation. It loads the data off an SD card, then onto the ram chip. No sound or graphic errors. That is why it is so expensive.

    2. Sorry for the miscommunication again. I was referring to that voice
    mail comment Balzac sent in about playing hookie and not the written
    comment. I know that one was read.

    I have not caught up, but I'm on the edge to finishing my backlog, if
    you know what I mean. I need to give 191+192 and 199-202 of TCR before
    I can honestly declare I'm running on empty barrels.

    I still recomend choosing two or three locations to where comments
    will be read so you don't forget them. Not wanting to miss out on
    comments from websites the podcast is distributed on will occur as
    often as you forget to check every platform. Any comments from your
    Podomatic page? Comments can be left there.

    3. for
    the reading pleasure of anyone interested. I'm not sure if I get such
    weird responses from people because I write like an idiot, but holy
    heck was this whole encounter funny to me. He ain't the only one who
    thinks I'm terrible at jokes.

    4. I have now join the Raiden 3 high score challenge and I got a series of numbers for ya!

    I scored 4.48 million. I don't have video footage to talk over, but I got audio commentary that will be released along with all the games I played for the CF High Score 'Note Comparison' Challenge. I'm just tired of getting flagged on my channel and want to keep it clean, so the audio should be fine.

    1. 4a. In honor of Duhmez: #SuckIt (it's a reference to his high score attempt video for Raiden 3. just being playful.)
